Getting off market sellers to work with you and your buyer. April 27th, 2020 | Posted in General Real Estate, Other Interests, Real Estate

Here is a common question about getting potential sellers to respond.  They may check you out online first so make sure you look good!  Don’t leave out any steps in the process.


Hi, Walter.  (Name Removed) wanted to reconnect with you.  Also, she and I wanted to touch base with you regarding some clever promotional ideas that she remembered you mentioned in soliciting high-end property owners.

How do you get them to not immediately toss away a listing letter announcing that we have a buyer for their property and would they consider selling? 


Make it look special and specialized.  Personalize the letter with the inside date, inside address, and salutation line of “Dear Mr./Mrs.”  State in the letter if they are considering a sale in the next 6 months that you have a buyer who has been pre-approved by (name the bank).  Tell them the features of the area that the clients like.  Then send a similar letter to the whole neighborhood.  Hand-sign each letter.  Use window envelopes with a regular stamp.  This will appear as a professional package that will not be thrown away, unless they don’t want to sell.  


Since I have retired from the speaking circuit, I have my systems (large books with software) that I was selling from the back of the room at about $1500.00.  These are my newest products and this package includes everything that I have ever done.  As a “pay it forward” opportunity I am now selling these same books and software at my cost, about 94% off.  This is the start of your plan to get to the point where you are living the dream.  This is not anything but selling you the best real estate training materials in the world for 94% less than they were selling for a couple of weeks ago.  You will get 9 books, a whopping 40 pounds of checklists and information that is easy to use.  These volumes have been used by agents in the US and Canada to be the best agent in their market place.  Go here to pick up your foundation for the future.
